In an interview with Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, Stevens spoke on how there is no individual player holding the team back, but it is that the entire team is no clicking.
Will Anthony Davis be traded before the February deadline? This season, the five-time All-Star is averaging 27 points with 12.8 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game. He argues whether or not Boston will in fact be willing to give Irving a max contract next summer. The Pelicans won 116 to 115. "It felt good tonight to win like that because that's who we are".

Giles played in both games of a back to back over the weekend and scored double digits in both games, providing hope that he can live up to some of his hype of becoming the next transcending big man. The Celtics destroyed their closest rivals (76ers) in the season opener, and it looked as though the team had a chance to win their first Championship in a decade.

In this picture, Davis reacts during a game against the Sacramento Kings at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, Oct. 19, 2018.
